REFLECTING SHEBBEAR

Due to Covid 19 we have not had all of our regular contributions so are very short of content. Please if you can provide an article of 500 words or more we would be very grateful. Some ideas could be your experience of moving to Shebbear, what hobbies you have such as Bee Keeping etc or how Covid19 has changed your work and/ or home life.. These are just a few ideas but we would consider anything you send.

If you have an article or require any further information please contact Mike Darby at salamanderservices@gmail.com articles are welcome at any time, Read the lastest Reflecting Shebbear here.
Thank you

THE VILLAGE HALL

The Village Hall Committee is aware of the sudden removal of the play area at Barn Close today, and we thought it might be helpful to give a little more information about the play area at the hall.

The Shebbear Village Hall and Playing Field Committee is a registered charity that maintains the hall for the benefit of the community.

As a charity, we simply don't have funds available to us to provide a direct replacement for the equipment for younger children that has just been removed. Particularly as we have just completed a major refurbishment of the toilets, and seen our income from bookings massively reduced this year due to Coronavirus.

The best way to protect or enhance the play area at the village hall is to get involved! Our Committee of volunteers needs new members to help with the day to day running of the hall as well as fundraising events (when we can hold them).

The playing field is a designated night landing site for Devon Air Ambulance, and is also used by the school for sports lessons and clubs.

If you would like to join the Committee then please contact Lucy or Marie in the New Year and we can give you more details about what is involved.
